Complainant Name:
The Very Reverend John Davies

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Independent

Complaint:

The Very Reverend John Davies of Brecon Cathedral complained that an article had inaccurately claimed that Suzy Straw’s performance of a sacred dance in Brecon Cathedral had provoked controversy and led to the cathedral authorities being bombarded with complaints. In fact, while concerns about the presentation had been expressed, the complainant contended that no worshippers from the cathedral congregation had expressed concern or opinion. The complainant claimed that he had been contacted by three individuals, and contended that this did not amount to a bombardment, as the article had indicated.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper annotated its internal archives with the complainant’s objections to the article.

Report: 73
